Easiest Chocolate Syrup Ever!

Have you ever noticed that going into the bathroom and closing the door will result in some sort of imminent catastrophe?
Built a train in the 2 minutes I was in there.
  • Children punching each other
  • Husband can't find (fill in the blank with what ever is missing) and he needs it immediately
  • Urgent phone call
  • Dog needs to go out right away
  • Children are starving "we will die if we don't get a snack at this moment"
  • Self inflicted hair cuts
  • Mom, I need my medium sized Spiderman
  • Mommy, I need to poop
  • Honey, "How do I turn on the dishwasher"
And on, and on, and on...
I usually leave the lavatory without accomplishing my original mission, and often forgetting what I even went in for.

It actually amazes me how they can hear the click of the bathroom door from 4 rooms away, but can't hear a thing I say when standing right next to them.
The whole thing seems like an unnatural phenomena.  
I've been fine tuning my ninja skills in order to close the bathroom door unnoticed.

Well, gotta go...
In the time it's taken me to type this I've had at least 5 urgent requests.
I wish you peace in the potty really is the little things!

Chocolate Syrup
Homemade chocolate syrup is a staple in our house. Super easy to make and lacking all of the mystery ingredients found in the store bought version. I usually reduce the sugar in this recipe by a little bit, but not too much. Use it to make chocolate milk, as an ice cream topping, or to make hot chocolate.

1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder(found in the baking isle)
1 cup water
pinch of salt

  1. In a small saucepan, mix sugar, cocoa and salt.
  2. Add water and stir well.
  3. Bring mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring when you remember to.
  4. Reduce heat and cook for 1 minute.
  5. Remove from heat and cool.
  6. Store in the refrigerator.

My Pinterventures


  1. We experience this same bathroom door phenomenon too. And it seems amplified with only one bathroom in the house.

    Chocolate syrup for hot chocolate is such a great idea. It's never occurred to me to try it!

  2. Oh, this is too funny and so true! Your chocolate syrup sounds yummy too! Thanks for sharing at What'd You Do this Weekend? :)
